ZOOM SHARING: GOVECS now offers electrical sharing fleets as a franchise concept
Munich, June 03, 2020 – GOVECS is now offering ZOOM SHARING fleets across Germany as a franchise concept and is a consultant for cities, municipalities and companies that want to offer networked electric scooter fleets – from just 20 vehicles. In this way, the leading manufacturer of electric scooters in Europe is not only broadening its position, but also creating an additional range of urban mobility that relieves car traffic in urban areas.
GOVECS currently operates ZOOM SHARING as its own sharing project in Stuttgart with 200 E-Schwalbe, which were awarded as best e-scooters by the ADAC in 2019, among other things, because of their strong drive system. The city in Baden-Württemberg serves as a live showcase and demonstrates how sharing can work efficiently.

- Franchising from 20 e-scooters, including the ADAC test winner E-Schwalbe
